Egypt has a fairly decent network of buses that run on the easily-navigable road network. There are multiple bus networks from various cities within Egypt to and from Cairo such as the Upper Egypt Bus, East Delta Bus, Middle Delta Bus Company, El Gouna bus, and others. All these bus companies either run along the length of the Nile where most of Egypt's inhabitants are, or they run from Cairo to the Sinai Peninsula. Most of these buses are air-conditioned and can be availed on the spot or by booking in advance. Cairo to Alexandria, Luxor, Sharm al-Sheikh and many other routes are popular with tourists who avail these buses from Cairo.

Journey Suggestion: Egypt has a well-developed network of motorways that connect various cities such as Cairo and Alexandria together. Although driving speeds are good, they may become slow in certain areas due to poor traffic management. Also, it is advisable to travel during the day mostly as night time further brings the risk of collision due to lack of reflectors, unmarked surfaces and others.

Egyptian National Railways were one of the first rail networks to be built within the Middle East and Africa. The rail network within Egypt is quite extensive and connects many parts of the heavily-populated areas of the Nile Valley as well as the Sinai Peninsula. These trains have excellent facilities like air-conditioned coaches and regular services to and from Cairo to other major and minor cities.
